Jøssing Fjord Center in Norway by CEBRA

Tuesday, April 10th, 2012

Article source: CEBRA

The Jøssing Fjord Center is a combined museum for mining and geology. If the outside exhibition areas are also taken into consideration, the area is really a small magma park. The museum building is set just outside Jøssing in beautiful natural surroundings, next to the former mines and the power station that produced electricity for the mining activities. The basic structure – a four-armed star plan – is cast in concrete around an intermediate massive core built from bales of straw.

Vertical Campus in Larvik, Norway by CEBRA

Friday, April 6th, 2012

Article source: CEBRA

Vertical Campus is a substantial extension to the local school. In the northern hemisphere, it makes sense to build compact buildings because they are economic and reduce heat loss, and also because this ensures short internal distances and synergies between different functions. In addition to being a compact school, the Vertikal Campus has a small footprint. First of all, this makes it possible to reuse the old foundations, which is important due to highly complicated geotechnical circumstances. Secondly, it leaves more outdoor park area for the children and creates distance to neighboring houses.

New Church of Våler in Hovedveien, Norway by CEBRA architecture

Sunday, April 1st, 2012

Article source: CEBRA architecture

Danish architects CEBRA’s proposal for a new church in Våler, Norway creates a symbolic landmark in the shape of a tilting cross using light and wood as key design elements for the interior.

The village of Våler, in the south eastern part of Norway, is in need of a new church in order to replace the village’s old wooden church, which burned down to the ground in 2009. The church is of great importance for the local community – both as a social gathering point and as characterizing landscape element. Therefore, the design of the new church has to combine a particular sensitivity and attention to the site’s culture-historical context with a modern architectural expression so as to succeed in creating flexible and contemporary church facilities.

Into the landscape in Seljord, Norway by Rintala Eggertsson Architects

Tuesday, March 27th, 2012

Article source: Rintala Eggertsson Architects

The students of  NABA,  Politecnico di Milano and Fredrikstad Scenography School designed and constructed three structures around the lake  Seljord in Telemark county South Norway.

The structures had three main reasons to be built, firstly to be used as stopping places for travelers and tourists, secondly to serve as meeting points for the local inhabitants, and thirdly to comment on the local stories of a sea serpent, a continuing myth with frequent observations spanning over a hundred years of time.  At the same time, this workshop is also part of larger activity, a project called Seljord and the legends, developed and curated by Springer Kulturstudio and Feste landscape architects, organized to revitalize the local economy and to invite more people to move to the area which today suffers of desertification and aging processes.

The church in the small town of Våler in Norway burned down and a competition was held to build a new one. We joined the competition with the following entry. It is in the rural church that the people in a village is experiencing its most emotional moments; this is where the kids run out on the last day of school, it is here you get married and it is here you bid farewell to your loved ones.

Modern Cabin GJ-9 in Bjergøy, Norway by Gudmundur Jonsson Arkitektkontor (designed using ArchiCAD and Atlantis)

Saturday, March 24th, 2012

Article source: Gudmundur Jonsson Arkitektkontor

The Cabin is designed for adaption to multiple settings not taking any particular site into consideration, being a product for mass-production distribution.

The general idea is to establish a Cabin-concept that favours a nice landscape setting with the need of appreciating a wonderful view. Two volumes containing bedrooms and service-area are composed in order to obtain the living and dining room space as glazed pavilion in-between giving contact to the nature in all directions.

The beautiful Vaalerchurch from 1805 burnt down in the spring of 2009. We have designed a new church as a symbolic landmark to succeed the old building. The new Vaaler church is placed further east from the placement of the old church, marking the historic axis with its tower. The new building is designed as a simple box where one corner is lifted up in order to point out the church room and the tower.

Elements in Røldal, Norway by WE architecture

Tuesday, March 13th, 2012

Article source: WE architecture

Elements is a Pilgrim Center located in a scenic mountain landscape in Western Norway.  Elements is a visitors’ center in close connection to the wooden church, “Røldalstavkirke”, from the 13th century.  RøldalStavkirke is one of the best preserved wooden churches in Norway and the church is the most frequent pilgrimage destination in the country. In order not to conflict with the church, the pilgrim center was fragmented into 4 boxes, stepping down into the landscape and given 4 completely different characters. The boxes are placed on the site so that they relate to the old church either by facing the latter or by creating outdoor space which is oriented towards it.
